Wade, LeBron and Bosh all miss practice

Other than Blake Griffin, the only thing that's slowed down the Miami Heat over the past few weeks is the injury bug. LeBron James sprained his left ankle against the Clippers, Dwyane Wade fell awkwardly on his knee in that same game and Chris Bosh sprained his ankle against the Bulls when Omer Asis endangered his life and well-being by hustling.

As a result, all three missed practice Monday for the Heat and are questionable for their game against the Hawks Tuesday. According to a tweet from Brian Windhorst, Bosh is doubtful while Wade and LeBron are "more likely."

LeBron was close to going against the Bulls Saturday, but sat out as a precaution. He said that he would've gone if this were the playoffs, but sat because it wasn't. Wade played, and played well, but the knee has been a bit sore since the Clipper game. It's not anything serious, just something he's trying not to overwork.

Let's just assume the Miami trio is unable to go Tuesday. What would that Heat team look like? How about not very good. The starting five would likely be Mario Chalmers, Eddie House, James Jones, Juwan Howard and Zydrunas Ilgauskas. A far cry from the powerful Heat team we've seen run to a 30-12 record. That starting five might not even be able to beat the Cavs. Well, let's not get carried away here. The Cavs are horrible.

But the Heat have dropped three straight and are definitely eager to get back on the winning side of things. With a good Hawks team ahead, I would assume Wade and LeBron will make every effort to be on the floor. It's not the playoffs, but it is a relatively big game against an Eastern opponent and with a three-game skid on their minds, I'm sure there's a little more incentive to play.

You know there is 2 guys in Miami who need to GTFO. Dwayne Wade and Hanley Ramirez. I have never seen 2 guys in the same city fake so many injuries when they don't want to play. At least Cliff Floyd was man enough to flat out admit he was scared of Randy Johnson and a few other pitchers. Wade doesn't want to play because the other 2 don't. If I am Riley just deal the guy to Toronto already.  His behavior has gotten ridiculous over the past 3 seasons and it is getting time for him to leave. This is Lebron's team now.

Wade would be more likely to get an STD....remember his ex wife suing him for giving her some? How about Bosh not paying child support? We all know James and his character.....just a great bunch of guys...lol

All of you are wankers and tossers are talking about  game you could never play and must not understand. You bet against the Heat then you are going to eat crow for the next several years.

This current Heat roster is very entertaining! I can only imagine what's in store for all of us come playoff time! What a bunch of candy a$$ starters. I betcha a buck we hear about Wade getting an infection from his most recent pedicure, LeBron with a bad rash from his recent back waxing and Bosh complaining about the cost of orange marmalade for his crumpets. Terrible times for these three...

LeBron might not have ever won anything but don't forget DeWade carried the heat to a championship, i'm sure his drive will influence LeBron to great heights in this years playoffs

Lebron's new nagging injury will work fine for him. When he chokes in the playoffs he's got it to blame.
